Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Carrying the not-so-proud traditions of its 2002 predecessor, the 2003 has a handful of instrument panel malfunctions that can leave you guessing your speed, engine temperature or how much gas is left in the tank.

I struck what appeared to be a small piece of debris on the interstate. I found out an hour later that it punctured my fuel tank. Unfortunately I did not find out about the leak until the parking garage I parked in for that 1 hour was closed by the fire department due to my leak. How can a sport utility vehicle have a plastic gas tank and no skid plate for protection" the gas tank is on "back order" from GM. Is there a problem with this set up"
